The Lyrics

Well John was Cam Rahn based
He was a Swift Boat guy,
PCF ninety-four
Back then in sixty-nine
But soon he got too bored
And he began to change
Was "Boston Strangler" now
His boss just thought him strange

But then he got a call
From Tricky Dick one night
He couldn't tell his crew
He had to keep it tight
No camera gear to pack
To reenact this fight
He had to take a spook
Into Cambodia...

And as the years passed by
He tried to change the past
Lied of atrocities
Consorted with Miss Giap
I guess we'll never know
What got inside his soul
For he just made things up
Betrayed his brothers all
And on the Senate floor
He spoke of Genghis Khan
Of braving guns and mines
To save ol' Jim Rassman
And of that Christmas night
When he heard Nixon speak
And heard the ARVNs shoot
At him in Cambodia...

But then the truth came out
About his lucky hat
And all the Swift Boat vets
Now said "We've had enough of that"

So now his lies are known
And every single poll
Shows all the lead he had
Has disappeared out in the haze

(Cambodia - don't lie now - no tears now)

But he will not retract
Even a single word
So there is only one thing left
We know for sure:
It was seared into his brain...
